Team News: Nuri Sahin fit to start for Borussia Dortmund

Nuri Sahin will start alongside Sebastian Kehl in midfielder for Borussia Dortmund as they travel to Marseille in the final game of the Champions League group stages.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin has passed a late fitness test to start against Marseille in tonight's final group-stage match in the Champions League.

The Turkish international's inclusion alongside Sebastian Kehl allows Henrikh Mkhitaryan to take up an advanced role in support of Robert Lewandowski.

Meanwhile, teenage defender Marian Sarr will partner Sokratis Papastathopoulos at centre-back, while Erik Durm gets in ahead of Lukas Piszczek at left-back.

Saber Khalifa, Andre-Pierre Gignac and Dimitri Payet all start for the hosts, while Benjamin Mendy is chosen ahead of Jeremy Morel.

The German side need three points to guarantee qualification to the knockout stages. while Les Phoceens - now under the temporary guidance of Jose Anigo - are yet to win a point in Europe this term.

Marseille: Mandanda, Mendes, Diawara, Mendy, Fanni, Cheyrou, Lemina, Payet, Gignac, Thauvin, Khalifa
Subs: Samba, Abdallah, Morel, Aloe, Imbula, Jordan Ayew, Bangoura

Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Sarr, Papastathopoulos, Durm, Kehl, Reus, Blaszczykowski, Sahin, Grosskreutz, Mkhitaryan, Lewandowski
Subs: Langerak, Kirch, Piszczek, Gunter, Hofmann, Aubameyang, Schieber
